If they wait a few years to sell the team things are going to be even more bare bones then they already are.

Going to look like an English lower division club trying to avoid administration. Academy kids, draft picks, and whatever they can get from GAM trades.

Id hope for a quick sale, otherwise its going to be really bleak for this team.

The game passed Shep by a long time ago.

Hopefully his last regular season game as a Red Bull. Better suited as a goon for an ECHL hockey team than a soccer player. Kudos to him on getting paid actual money to play this sport.

Pros: known quantity, good attitude, no need to use scouting resources
 
Cons: low ceiling, backup level player, takes an international slot
 
The international spot for a backup player with limited potential is a dealbreaker for me, but recognizing RB's level of ambition and front office mediocrity I wouldn't be overly shocked or appalled to see him back.


This is the other issue, RBNY have done a pathetic job of getting guys GCs. CCJ was the last one, and that was a couple of years ago.

Hopefully Reyes and a few others are on the path to acquiring them this winter.

You don't think having him as a reasonably priced backup is palatable or acceptable? Seems a little extreme he wasn't an awful player.


Yes, that would mean offloading Barlow and Klimala, signing a new DP ST and bringing Fabio back as the primary backup.

Not sure there has been anything in the recent past to suggest multiple big moves on the horizon. Schneider should be looking to put his stamp on the team, but Im concerned theyll bring Fabio back do nothing else to improve the attack.

Klimala is a sunk cost, holding on to him just because is not going to materially improve his performance on this team.
